COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This world-famous beer has the character and richness to stand in for fine sherry or port. Just the right degree of sweetness - never cloying; wonderfully aromatic and warming. EKU 28 is the one whenever something good and strong is needed.

Light amber in color. Big bubbly head fades down into nothing. smells of bruised fruits with very sweet, date like notes. More intensly sweet date notes in the flavor. Alcohol kick on the end that leaves a slight burn in the throat as if you were drinking some hard stuff. Drink slowly and savor. Not a beer to shotgun unless you want to be dead drunk after a few bottles.

Nice caramel hoppy aroma. ALcohol overpowers the body. Finishes slightly sweet.

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 16, 2002
A very good beer. Nice copper look. Sweeter than I expected it to be. Good at cool, cold or room temperatures. The only problem I found is that the head evaporated too quickly, even with a straight and fast poor.

Definitely alcoholic, but sweet enough to mask most of the vapors. It goes down smoothly and has a distinctive caramel mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2006 Another of my faves! This is an excellent beer. Strong alcohol notes throughout. Not very carbonated. Golden brown to brown red in color. Excellent as a digestif or dessert. Try it with a shot of Scotch in it as me and my friends do (then known as Luftwaffe Fuel!). Talk about strong!! HIGHLY recommended! It"s even better when aged!

Drowning toast in a pool of whisky…Caramel candy is floating around but there isn’t enough to be used as a buoy…A wet log then passes by and allows some dark fruit and sugar to survive and thus stay above the alcohol…

UPDATED: FEB 29, 2004 fresh: oops i dropped a sugardaddy candy in my dog's food..oh wait, nevermind, that was the aroma of this beer...what do you get when you take a farm's load of barley malt, absolutely no hops, too much sugar, and some yeast??...this horrifically strong tasting brew!... I heard that suicide bombers in Afghanistan drink this right before they die so to take their minds off of the pain of dying...sorta like biting your lip when you stub your toe...substituting one pain for another...so if you ever stub your toe or plan on bombing a discotech or subway train..this beers for you (1.8) 1992 version, drank 2004: Wow, what a frickin' improvement..this was like a chocolate malt shake...similiar to an aged samiclaus. (4.0)

Sweet, rum-like nose. Deep orange gold, but no head. Very sweet, like brown sugar. Nutty and spicy. The alcohol lingers long after the taste profile is over. Smooth, clean palette. Lot of character to this beer - enjoyable for sure. Doesn’t go with food well, except maybe dessert.

Barley malt rum aroma and taste, hints of marcipan. Red light amber. Strong alcohol taste. It’s more like a barley wine.
